When did it all start?
Around 12 with stories I kept to myself. I’ve always been that kid in class who would look outside the window and imagine all sorts of adventures before the teacher would ask me to focus on the lesson. Then I left stories for bad poems. Really bad! But it felt good. I came back to stories around 19 before actually entering a writing school in Brussels who would teach me journalism and screenwriting. I also had the opportunity to learn everything about writing plays.
Then I worked as a receptionist and a secretary in a great law firm but it just wasn’t the right place for me. Before actually admitting it, I had (and still have) the pleasure to be a critic for the Suricate Magazine, mostly in the Theater and Movie section. I also started translating and then writing articles for My-Brussels. The website has been brought back to life since January 2016.
What about today?
Today, I’m a student at IHECS (communication & journalism in Brussels). I decided it would be easier to find a job I would love through a diploma. And why not learn new things while I’m at it? What was basically Chinese to me (no offense!) is now making a little more sense: InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop… you name it!
Ideally, I would love to continue writing for My-Brussels and the Suricate Magazine. I also had the chance to write some articles in the Marketing field which was a first for me and I did enjoy the experience. At some point, I would love to find people who would be interested in my screenplay and one of my plays (writing the second one).
